Wellbeing Supports For Parents, Pupils And Staff

Below you will find links to documents and websites which you may find helpful in supporting yourself, your family and your child in preparing for returning to school.  This is by no means an exhaustive list of resources and should you find anything you feel would be beneficial to share, please let us know.

Psychological Resilience Hub
The Psychological Resilience Hub is for anyone who is struggling with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, affecting their psychological wellbeing. The service is for anyone in Grampian or Orkney. 
The Hub is there to provide a short course of psychological first aid (between 1-3 sessions) to help adults, young people and their families manage feelings that have become difficult during COVID 19. This may include providing signposting to useful information and advice regarding where to access longer-term support if needed.
Callers do not need to have had COVID themselves as the impact of the pandemic has impacted on all of us in lots of different ways.
Callers may have had difficulties that were previously manageable or may have never had concerns about their mental well-being but, with the pressures of COVID, are now experiencing difficulties coping.
Please note: The Psychological Resilience Hub is NOT an emergency service. If you or someone you care about is at significant risk of harm to themselves or others, then please contact NHS 24 by calling 111 or contact your GP surgery. Please also note:
The PRH will try and contact callers quickly (within 7 days if you are in significant distress and within 3 weeks otherwise).

  • Callers can help by providing as many options as possible for when the PRH reaches them.
  • When the PRH calls, the number will not show up on the phone, it will come up as ‘withheld’.
